Most people go through periods of several days, to several weeks… sometimes even several years of low energy levels and this could be because of a variety of reasons.
However there are common reasons why you might be experiencing low energy levels and after you’ve read everything in this post, I guarantee you that you will be able to try one of these methods to shift your energy levels in no time.
Why are you low in energy?
As I said there are many reasons why people might be experiencing low energy levels, here’s just a few of the most common:
1. Depression – Feeling depressed can lead to lack of energy, which can quickly spiral out of control. If you’re in a mood or have felt depressed for a while, you need to see your doctor ASAP. Depression can lead to not only mental health issues, but also physical health issues. So better to be safe than sorry.
2. Boredom – The mind needs stimulation in order to stay active and healthy. If you do the same things over and over again, you will quickly become bored, unfulfilled and that could even lead to depression. Low energy is a direct result of boredom.
3. Diet – Did you know that diet was the leading cause of depression? Well it is. If you don’t eat the right foods with a balanced diet, you will experience low levels of energy very frequently.
How to boost your energy levels
Get some Vitamin D – Us humans get our dose of Vitamin D from the sun, just standing outside for 10 to 20 minutes per day is all you need to get those Vit D levels up. If you happen to live somewhere where it’s gloomy all the time and you work inside a lot, then you will run the risk of low levels of Vitamin D which has a big impact on energy levels and bone growth.
Up your B-12 – Vitamin B-12 is one of the most important vitamins that the human body needs. If you eat meat, then you will be getting your B-12 from red meat mainly. However if you don’t eat meat, then you need to supplement. 1000mg per day in a tablet form should do the trick, but make sure you consult a doctor first.
Do something new – Most people have no idea that low energy can be caused by boredom and lack of stimulation. So break your pattern, stop watching TV and get out of the house.
There you go folks, the quickest way to get your energy levels up.
